Wardens To Get Citys Thanks
More than 170 members of the Christchurch public will be thanked at a special ceremony on Wednesday.
They are Christchurch City Council honorary wardens who, along with Councillors and Community Board members, work with the Parks and Waste Management Units. Their main job is to help the Councils park rangers and trade waste officers in the preservation and protection of the citys parks and reserves, rivers, and foreshore areas, including the New Brighton pier.
Their main role is one of observation and education rather than direct involvement or enforcement. They play a major part in educating the public on parks and river by-laws.
They carry identification cards, have embroidered wardens caps, and even receive a quarterly newsletter.
At the function on Wednesday 5 July in the Mayors reception area, first floor, Civic Offices, at 5pm the Mayor, Garry Moore, will thank the 231 wardens for their work.
